Episode Description

The buzz: “Cities are never random” (Neal Shusterman). The future of viable smart cities around the globe is being shaped by two major forces: accelerated urbanization and mobility technology innovations. But the path is still littered with formidable roadblocks: investment challenges, interoperation issues and acceptance. How soon will the road be paved – and will it be with gold? The experts speak. Larry Stolle, SAP: “Smart cities are those who manage their resources efficiently. Traffic, public services and disaster response….” (Eduardo (de Costa) Paes). Heather Ashton, IDC: “Imagine if we focused on optimizing roads for the total number of people on them instead of the total number of vehicles” (Mark Fields). Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, IDC: “Everywhere I go, I see incredible examples of communities that have a vision for transportation and how it will impact the quality of life, mobility, economics and opportunity (Anthony Foxx). Join us for Paving the Road to Smart Cities.
